MA 080 — Fundamentals of Mathematics
4 credits; 4 lecture hours
This is a basic mathematics course with an emphasis on applications. This course reviews such topics as fractions, percents, decimals, ratios and proportions, rounding and estimating, measurement systems, linear equations and inequalities, and systems of linear equations. It is designed to provide the necessary skills for credit-bearing mathematics and sciences courses.
Prerequisite(s): SAT scores of 530 or above will not require this course. ACT scores of 23 and above will not require this course.
Mathematics Proficiency is a requirement for the AAS degree and is a prerequisite for all mathematics and science classes. Based on placement, a student who shows need for improvement in mathematics may be required to enroll in MA 080 or MA 081 before registering for classes that have Mathematics Proficiency as prerequisite. Mathematics Proficiency may be demonstrated by a qualifying score on the mathematics portion of the SAT or ACT or by placement exam for students that do not have SAT or ACT scores. The Mathematics Proficiency may also be satisfied by transfer of an appropriate credit-bearing mathematics course or by a passing grade in an equivalent developmental mathematics course offered at another accredited college or university.
